Show yer Samicks!
Here's my Concord ~
Avion 7 from 2002
Didn't even know there was a Samick Club! Mine's a 1991 SAT 650.
(click for more pics)
Bridge and tuning machines have been upgraded to Gotoh Japan. Stock pickups were upgraded to Bill and Becky L500's, pots upgraded to CTS, and the switch with Switchcraft. Fitted with a new Graph Tech nut, black Gibson speed knobs, and refretted with jumbo stainless steel frets.
No surprise that Tele owners have such good taste! Here's mine - Royale with replacement Kent Armstrong HB & SC pups
most of my Samicks have names on them like Washburn, Epiphone or Gretsch ... except for my purple Rangercaster ...
Apparently a rare bird, Greg Bennett sig edition of the Formula body style.
Nice double bound! Love the color ~ Teal flame top?
Teal quilt-top That pic is rather dull, it's much prettier in person.
Quilt-top, of course! I don't know how I missed that one, because my Samick Concord is actually a quilt-top, also...
How about some more pics of your teal beauty?..
Oddly, I don't have other shots. Most of my guitar photos are just snapshots or phone pics
I keep thinking I'll get around to some setup shots. (But subconsciously I must think having good pics is a step toward eBay or something )
To-do, to-do, things to-do.
I've got a Samick Artist Series LP. I think it's around 2001 in year. I'd like to know if the top is photoflame or real wood. Other than that, this guitar seems to be really well built. I replaced the string thru ferrules in the front and back, as the ones in the front had slipped a little and the strings were cutting into the cap.
Actually I have 2 Samicks. If you look in the first pic, you'll see a Jazzmaster with P90s.
I doubt if anyone can tell from a photograph, but from all the Samicks I've seen up close, I'd bet on real wood.
Someone said if you look with a magnifying glass and see dots (dots that make the pattern) it's a photo flame. I can't see any dots. But then, it could be a veneer, right?
Basically that's what a cap top is. Could be 1/4" or 1/32", but it's a decorative layer of pretty (real) wood on top of the body.
Samick-built 1987/88 Epi Sheraton II
Wonderful guitar, been a fan of the Samick factory for a long time. I have some info on Samick Epis if someone´s interested.
Same for me!
Here is mine (been already posted on other threads).
SAB 653 (1993?)
Thank you, Samick!
